Ma­roons dish up shock for OHA

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport - ADAM CLIF­FORD

WITH lad­der po­si­tions locked away, it was Di­a­mondBacks that drew the great­est con­fi­dence boost ahead of Septem­ber ac­tion with a 2-0 de­feat of sec­ond-placed OHA.

Af­ter a slow start to the sea­son and a change of coach, Di­a­mondBacks con­tinue to do enough to keep them­selves in the pre­mier­ship con­ver­sa­tion.

Coach Rowan Bri­d­ley heaped praise on his daugh­ter Philly and re­turn­ing star Emily Dono­van post-match.

“It was a great game by Philly in mid­field with nu­mer­ous at­tacks and in­ter­cep­tions, while the re­turn of Emily Dono­van up front has put a real be­lief in the squad,” Bri­d­ley said.

“It’s great to be play­ing well go­ing into the last few games be­fore fi­nals and we now know we can match it with the best.

“If we keep improving, we should be able to give the fi­nals a shake.”

A goal in ei­ther half set­tled the women’s Premier League
